Welcome back to our series on cloud verification solutions. This is the final part of a three-part blog—you can read part one here and part two here.
Now, for the moment you’ve all been waiting for: what can Cadence do for you in the realm of cloud verification. Are you ready?
In case you saw that list of qualities one should look for in a cloud partner in the last part of this blog, and wondered who ticks all those boxes—Cadence does. Tapping into 20 years of hosting experience, Cadence has just announced Cadence Cloud, a portfolio of solutions that meet the needs of companies large and small. The first of these is the Cloud-Hosted Design Solution—a fully-managed offering that provides access to the full suite of Cadence software products. This offering is an EDA-as-a-Service solution that can help you—no matter who you are—meet your variable compute, time-to-market, and cost requirements without the difficulty of managing the cloud environment yourself.
If you’re concerned about the security of doing all your verification work in the cloud, don’t worry: we were concerned about that, too. Our IaaS partners pass global security standards like:
· FIPS 140-2 Level 2
· DoD Security Requirements
· ISO 27001, 27017, and 27018
· …and more!
In addition, the Cloud-Hosted Design Solution takes your usual infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) security to the next level, with additional security apps, practices, and testing.
The next solution in the portfolio is Palladium Cloud. This gives users access to the Cadence Palladium emulation platform. Seasoned Palladium users who already have on-site hardware can use it when they need a little extra emulation capacity for their projects. New users find it great for getting instant access to emulation tech. Palladium Cloud supports the full range of emulation use models.
If you don’t like the idea of Cadence managing your environment for you, then the third solution in the Cadence Cloud portfolio is for you—the Cloud Passport model. With Passport, you can choose from a list of cloud-ready tools and manage your own environment using any of the top IaaS vendors.
Now, when you combine the scalability, security, and flexibility of Cadence Cloud with Xcelium’s amazing simulation technology, you get a radical increase in verification productivity that was inconceivable before.
If you’re worried about time to market—and who isn’t, really—Cadence Cloud is here for you. Verification is the biggest time-sink in the development process, so shrinking that should be your first concern—and it’s exactly there that Cadence Cloud packs the most power. Bringing together Cadence’s twenty-plus years of environment managing experience and a wide range of cloud-read and optimized products, Cadence Cloud is ready to help you address your needs.
So, the question remains: are you ready?
